While Tiffanie at the front desk is the absolute crown jewel at this location, I probably will never stay here again. On the positive side: there have been significant improvements in the plumbing (more energy efficient, less leaking). That being said this last trip well, it was probably my last stay. I stay here on average 2-3 times a year...

Clean hotel, great staff. Convenient to the Auburn University campus. Also close to the grocery store. Comfortable and clean beds. Pet friendly. Good parking; Park right in front of your door if they put you in a room that's available to the parking.

It was a good, clean room for a reasonable price. I stayed from 04/16-04/27. The rates were reasonable, with the exception of one weekend, when the rate went up to $145/night for the weekend, due to some activities going on in the area. I was not told about the significant increase in price when I made the reservation. The room...

Stayed here while in town for the music festival. I was concerned because reviews I had read didn't look so good. I was pleasantly surprised. Sure, it is an older property, and the décor is a bit dated. But it was clean, the beds were comfortable, and it was quiet. The staff was friendly. My only complaint was the breakfast...

The room was very clean and the bed comfortable. The clothes rack fell and maintenance was there in 5 min to fix the rack. The staff was very helpful from check in to checkout. Candi the housekeeper made sure we had clean towels and kept our room free from trash. I will stay again

The hotel needs a bit of a remodel but it was fine for the price. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I had an issue with the key not working and they fixed it immediatley. The location is very good as well.

OK, this hotel has seen better days. In fact, I actually worked there as a high school student when it was first built. When it was built, it was THE showcase of Auburn. But many years and owners later, the Clarion is a bit tired... However, I would definitely recommend this hotel because of the excellent staff. Every single person...

There's several lower cost hotels on the way in to the campus. I sometimes stay here and always expect that the hotel will be just a little better than it is, but it's not. It's just OK for their price range, think a cut below a Hampton Inn and a Holiday Inn Express.
